OMG all those skins are awesome. DO WANT!

Shame it's a limited time event, I will be lucky if I can get even half of them. I hope they are not all legendaries.

@Edit: I mean, Lunara's and Sonya's skins look awesome, but I am not sure they qualify as Legendary. I believe they would better be Epic such as Diablo's, since they only change some animations. Only Garrosh's is really Legendary Material.

I'm a bit disappointed by the Kharazim skin. They could've made it a little wilder to actually look like a hilarious mexican freestyle wrestling monk. Like:

All skins are Legendary with the exception of Diablo, ETC, and Kharazim skins.

Since someone seemed to wonder, here's the prices for the new stuff.

El Chamuco Diablo: 600 shards.

El Jefe Garrosh: 2400 shards.

Dropkick Karazhim: 600 shards.

El Parca Lunara: 2400 shards.

La Pantera Sonya: 2400 shards.

And both mounts are 2400 shards as well.

It also says the skins are in the *Suns out, guns out* lootboxes, so at least they're not only for a short time, and then never coming back.

Still think that the prices on these things are pretty mental. O.o I have to get lucky as all hell to even have the chance to get 1 of these skins from the looks of it. Which for the record, will be Lunara's skin. It is freaking amazing!

This is probably my favorite Event so far. The way they're handling the theming of these skins is fantastic. The sound effects and themed abilities look amazing. Dropkick Kharazim is my personal favorite; he finally got a decent skin (not really a fan of Bronze Tiger Kharazim).

Also, what is the deal with that Shark Mount? It wasn't mentioned anywhere.

      Blizzard started posting Hero teasers on Twitter yesterday and it's more than certain that we'll see a new Hero introduction at Gamescom. Rockyd900 viewed the source code of the first teaser and the alt image said "teaser for Mephisto" before Blizzard removed it.
      After Deckard Cain, it appears that Mephisto will be the next Hero to join the fray. Excited to see a new Diablo Hero? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
      Teaser 1
      Here we have the first teaser posted by Blizzard and Rockyd900's screenshot of the Mephisto description.
